he liked to be alone lie on his back and stare at the sky.its clouds made shapes only a child could make.some older boys approached, he knew fear.they beat him, grabbed him by his lims and stretched him out. they went into the water , his face to the sky, he couldn't swim, never tried. shame,lay down your guns, shame, we are one, shame, hold your head high, shame, there is no time. he was dropped into the water. "no." he cried out as the boys ran home. lost love. scared and stammering , he told his mom of the boys, the love this child was supposed to know?never cried, held it all inside. hold me now, don't let me fall apart. hold me now, i haven't got the strength. hold me now, got to find time. hold me now, time to fix it right. if i turn my back things won't change, if i walk away things will stay the same. hold me now the memories will stay the same if i walk away . do you see what i see? do you feel what i feel? the lines are drawn, damage done. just a boy...just a boy.
